Vulgar Faction - March Of The Faction
The first thing that I noticed within the bio were the different backgrounds of the musicians, most of all because the different cultural backgrounds can lead to nice surprises as we have seen in the past. Well I don't know if it's the same with Vulgar Faction but that's something I'm going to find out.
From the beginning of the first song 'Crackhead' it's obvious that Vulgar Faction likes straight forward metal. No strange sounds or weird musical freaking out just good old in your face metal. Within this first song the name Sepultura is constantly circling around my head, with this I mean the Sepultura with Max Cavalera around the Chaos AD album and not all the crap they released after that album.
In 'Bring Back Nothing' Moreno shows a different side of himself when he sings some clean vocals. This reminds by the way a lot of Dave Williams of Drowning Pool. When we continue with the rest of the album the music is constantly in the style of Soulfly and Sepultura where especially ´First Stone´ draws the attention. A song that can hold your attention for the entire six minutes the song lasts.
Of course this demo is not of great productional level. But the fact that they've recorded it at a studio with a producer, they have a website that looks good and the demo has a professional artwork gives me the feeling they do take this band very serious and are willing to work hard for it. As for the songs they do look like some of the bands mentioned before but on the other hand those songs can still draw the attention for quite a while.
